Yunoko Lake, Nikko

4.4
#5 of 29 in Nature in Nikko
The so-called "lake of hot water," Yunoko Lake represents the merging place of different waters from the hot springs of the area, and serves as a favorite go-to for a day off in the pristine nature. Enjoy the view of the waterfall the lake creates upon the edge of steep cliffs, which contributes to the overall calming atmosphere. Onsite accommodations provide the option to stay overnight, but you can also spend the day relaxing and having a picnic, or go and try the boat rides. The site also offers a number of bars and restaurants where you can grab a bite while enjoying the view of the surrounding landscape. Take a look at our Nikko online day trip planner to schedule your visit to Yunoko Lake and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • By bus to the time of the spring skiing, the whole of the lake is frozen, very beautiful, there are people on the lake, the sun is really suitable for the sketch tour, not many people not crowded, very good

  • Free parking in front of the visitor center. There exits the Lake at a few minutes walk. I think it is not where you can also take a boat ride here, but basically a quiet stay Yumoto hot spring is nice, but not so long.

  • During my visit to Nikko on year end, I have been to this Lake as well. One of the most beautiful lake I have ever seen. At that time it was frozen and was able to walk over it. Place was so silent that if you throw any stone you can hear clear sound of it and stone can go far away due to ice. Nearby there was a nice restaurant and enjoyed local food there. In summer, for hiking also this lake is good place. Must go!!!
  • Quiet surrounded by mountains on three sides. It spreads the calm surface of the Lake. And he watched in the head candies! seems to keep getting "pathos Symphony" (lol)

  • Tranquil lake in Oku-Nikko. Air is delicious. Size small is good-shaped lake. Enjoy the changing seasons. Guests can enjoy fishing. A lot of trout in abundance, fishing lures. 🎵 Spa heavyweights live, waterfall, stream, mountain, Marsh is available. Mountain vacation is a full course.

  • Elementary school 6th grade went a daylight excursion. Return to the water, hung a rainbow if you see a lake. Think said of Rainbow's frontier and was happy to see ❗

  • And close to 1500 m above sea level, is by nature and clear air. Also, the water quality of the Lake is so transparent, very soothing to watch. I felt as if in addition to water falls as well as Lake Chuzenji, senjogahara, a little ahead, Gunma prefecture into Emerald Green suganuma, you can enjoy the natural beauty and grandeur.
